Round 1 is in the books and our 3 in-state teams have made their selections! So, you know what that means, time to hand out those grades...
Miami Dolphins: The first in-state team to make a pick last night since the Bucs traded out of pick 7. They take DB out of Alabama, Minkah Fitzpatrick. Ball-hawk who flies all over the field, maybe the best player from last year's CFB Playoff National Title team.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: They moved back from 7 to 12 in a trade with the Buffalo Bills, in doing that, they secured 2 second round picks in this year's draft (picks 53 and 56). That has to be considered when grading the team's draft last night. Their pick left a lot of Bucs fans scratching their heads. Vita Vea, DT, Washington. He's got the size that you just can't teach and natural footwork, but scouts question whether or not he can hold up as a 3-down player.
Jacksonville Jaguars: They stood pat @ 29, and with Lamar Jackson still on the board, many fans hoped that was the direction that they'd go in. They didn't. Instead they drafted the super talented/high-motored Taven Bryan, DT, Florida.
So, get your Kiper hat on, it's time to hand out some draft grades!
